The HESI exam is conducted by nursing schools as a function of a university or college nursing program. You may also hear it called the HESI A2, the HESI Admission Assessment Exam, or the Evolve Reach A2. It is one of several tests used to grant admission to nursing schools. Others are the Nursing Entrance Test (NET) and the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). Please check with your chosen nursing school to be sure you are studying for the test it requires. Also, schools vary in the number of HESI exam sections they require for admission. Either their website or the admissions office will be able to give you information about which sections you should focus on.
You will get your test results in print from the proctor at the end of your test. Depending on your nursing school, you may be able to retake the test after a waiting period. Check with your school for their requirements.
